  1. Just installed the updater. Everything was fine, now having network problems with Airport base station. Using neighbor’s wifi connection to hunt Apple support for answers. Arrghh! I hate IT duty first thing in the morning.

    Why hast thou forsaken me o Airport?

    Apple should have made it clear. The update doesn’t show up in Software Update. Instead, the update shows up in the Airport Utility.

    After making sure that your Airport Utility is updated to the most recent version by running Software Update, open the Airport Utility application. You’ll then be able to update to the newest Firmware.

    See the following.

    That should fix things for you.

  3. I have the latest version of Airport Utility. When try to check for updates, I get a Microsoftian error message that tells me, among other things, to “check my network settings” but doesn’t tell me what to look for or how to correct it.

    I had this problem the last time, but I don’t remember how I resolved it.

  4. > I don’t see a standalone installer. I can’t seem to update it otherwise.

    > Hmmmm. It’s not showing up in Software Update for me…

    Just run Airport Utility, and it show up immediately. It’s a good thing I read MDN, because I often go for weeks without needing to run Airport Utility. I would not have known about the update.

    Hmm… Not sure why that’s happening.

    Reset your Base Station and then set it up again from scratch. (I’m not sure which one you have). Then try installing the update as I described above by going into the Airport Utility. There’s a setting on the menu/window for “Updates”. You can set it to notify you etc. I think there’s a “Check now” button.

    Still not working?

    Make sure you are connected with a WIRED connection, not wireless. If youwere connected wireless, and problem will likely result in no connection to your base station until you connect wired.

    just my thoughts,
